Well, I got a key. No more hanging around the lifts at work waiting for other people to arrive and following them in trying not to look suspicious. But I lost my phone. Kinda ironic since I’m working at a phone company. But that’s okay, my mobile phone is close at hand, and it even works when I remember to charge it!

Meanwhile, on matters of greater importance, I have located the Coke machine. It’s down 27 floors, but at least it’s inside the building, so my emergency caffeine supply isn’t too far away.

And as far as the lunchtime shopping goes, the top ranking visited shop so far is JB Hifi. Normally it could be very dangerous only being a block away from there, but so far I’ve managed to be remarkably restrained, and have come out of there without an armful of CDs more often than not. It’s probably because I know full well that we’ve actually run out of space for them in the highly convenient CD stacking shelf of the bookshelf at home. So I don’t want to buy any (well, okay, many) more until we either find more shelf space or clear some out.
